Hi everyone!

I'm going to re-do my bedroom, and I was thinking of adding a wall shelf to start a mini garden. Is this possible? What would be some good plants to grow? I have never planted ANYTHING before, so something cheap and low maintenance would be good. Also, I live in a 2nd floor apartment in Singapore. Weather is hot and humid all year round. I would be unable to add the shelf next to the window because of the curtains.

To summarize, I need indoor plants with no need for direct sunlight. Are cacti the only solution???

I've done spider plants. They don't require direct sun plus they are supposed to help clean the air. They are very easy to take care of as well. Good luck.

Not sure how humid your bedroom is, but some types of ferns are used for bathroom plants, because the require little sunlight and love humidity

How about Bonsai?  I've had mine for around 6 years and it's doing fine. Low maintenance.  I just water regularly, make sure it has enough nutrients and it gives back a lot of love.  They also look fantastic.  I also love Bonsai's.  Hope this helps.
